Sweet Weekly Specials:
Discovered in 1976 at the Hacienda de Cara Cara in Venezuela, this is a natural mutation, or sport, of the regular Washington variety of navel. It is parthenocarpic, or asexual, and is only propagated through grafting. This means it is the only truly seedless citrus fruit. It has pink flesh because of high levels of the phytonutrient lycopene, also found in grapefruit. It has a grapefruit-like flavor, but much milder and less acidic. These are here now, and we’re welcoming their arrival with a nice price of $1.99 lb.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! This year was super low key for my family; we were all pretty worn out from the week, so we spent the day in our jammies and slippers. The week of Thanksgiving is pretty hectic at the Co-op, as we try to make sure you all have a warm and wonderful holiday. By the end of the day Wednesday, I am ready to go into hibernation mode for a re-charge of the smile-o-meter. I get great joy out of making sure your experience with us was a pleasure.
I take pride in my customer service ability, with full knowledge that YOU are the most important person in the building and I am grateful you choose to spend your time with us. Now this being said, to maintain this through out the holiday I need time to fill my tank.
How do I do this you ask? I play!!
Paint, knit, play ball with my dogs, and, of course, I bake. Here is the latest treasure I made.

Yes, we do have many options when it comes to buying your green superfoods, and now we have one more! Amazing Grass is grown and harvested in the United States on a family-run farm in the great state of Kansas, and they have a few unique flavor options that could just get you sipping your greens each day. Their Pineapple Lemongrass is fresh and vibrant just mixed in with water, or could be added to your green smoothie for extra zip!
Amazing Grass also offers powdered meal options too. These are a great way to get essential nutrients when traveling or if you tend to skip meals during the day. Another unusual and tasty flavor is Cafe Mocha! This is for folks who like that bitter-sweet flavor of coffee in the morning (and that caffeine kick!) and also want some added nutrition to get them going.
Both are on sale now, and are available in single serving packets, so you can give it a try for cheap!
